Choosing Your Countertop Edge – Part 2

Welcome back to our comprehensive guide on countertop edges, where we dive into the details that can elevate your room’s design. In our first countertop edge blog, we explored some classic edge profiles. Today, let’s look at other creative, sophisticated, and high-end edge options that can add a unique character to your granite, quartz, or quartzite countertops. If you’re considering features for your new project, these edge profiles could provide the finishing touch that turns functional into fabulous.

Mitered Edge

Mitered edges are a popular choice for those who want to create a dramatic look with a thicker countertop in their kitchen. This style incorporates an eased edge that is cut at a 45-degree angle and joined with another to create a seamless, thicker edge. These edges are typically anywhere from two to four inches thick and create the perfect touch of luxury in a kitchen design.

Triple Waterfall Edge: The Elegant Cascade

Imagine three graceful, rounded edges cascading like a gentle stream. That’s the triple waterfall edge for you. It’s an intricate design that adds depth and an element of sculptural art to your countertop edges, perfect for an elegant kitchen where detail matters.

Ogee Edge

The ogee edge is a decorative edge style that features a subtle, S-shaped curve. This style is often used in traditional kitchens that feature ornate details and intricate designs. Ogee edges are perfect for those who want to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to their design.

Double Ogee Edge: The Regal Statement

The double ogee countertop edge is an embodiment of opulence and sophisticated design, presenting a double-thick top that exudes grandeur and timeless beauty. This stacked edge style is crafted by gluing two classic Ogee edges together, creating a sumptuous dual-layered profile. Each layer, with its sweeping S-shaped curve, stacks harmoniously to form a striking and richly detailed edge. The above image features a double ogee stacked with an eased edge, which is just one of the stacking combinations that can be done to create a unique look. 

Ogee Radius

The ogee radius edge is an exquisite and versatile countertop edge profile that elegantly merges traditional and contemporary design elements. Characterized by its distinctive S-shaped curve, similar to the classic ogee edge, it adds an air of sophistication and luxury. What sets the ogee radius apart is the subtle rounding of its lower section, softening the overall profile and lending it a more modern appeal. This rounded bottom edge not only enhances the tactile experience but also provides a sleek, streamlined look. 

Knife Edge: The Modern Maverick

The knife countertop edge is a modern and sleek design choice that brings a crisp, angular aesthetic to countertops. This edge style is characterized by its sharp, diagonal cut along the top edge of the countertop, creating a distinct angled appearance that resembles a knife’s edge. The angle typically slopes downwards at around 45 degrees, though it can vary, adding a contemporary and minimalist look.
